About David Johnston-Keay

David has been acting for claimants for more than 20 years, specialising in occupational disease claims.

He has a particular interest in respiratory disease, successfully recovering damages for claimants who have developed illness as a result of their past employment.  Claims include asthma, hypersensitivity pneumonitis, silicosis and COPD as well as work related cancers. 

David is a lead solicitor for the claimants in the group actions brought against the operators of coke ovens involving respiratory disease and cancers, securing a judgment following trial in the High Court in July 2018 (Pearce v Others v Secretary of State for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy [2018] EWHC). 

David's also specialises in military disease work.  He represents current and former servicemen who have suffered hearing loss, respiratory disease and other injuries which often curtail their service in the Armed Forces.
